Akbi Khan has been a soap mega-fan for 30 years and been writing about them for three. She watches all four daytime dramas on the air and works in other soap-related venues to restore the ABC lineup and remind the world that soaps are still relevant and important. She got her BA in English and journalism and MA in rhetoric in composition. For the latter she researched and created her own Save Our Soaps group. She enjoys going dancing, laughing heartily and often, and social activism, and anything related to words and language.
